1971 is great too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm unpopularfred:

that 1972 Lonnie Donnegan "Monsters of Skiffle" tour was awesome
  1:06pm Zinn The Mood:

Great rumination on the end of the 60’s. Did that special invoke HST’s reflection on the end of the American Dream?
  1:10pm Gerry from Miami:

PSEU. "El Invento" is indeed a real word in Spanish. It basically means "invention." Juan Gonzalez wrote this song for his daughter, I found out. He was asking the basic questions of creation, of God, of the meaning of life. Very nice song. I had heard of Gonzalez before, but had never encountered his music anywhere. I guess my college degree in Spanish language and literature has, for once, come in handy.
  1:10pm egould310:

Heavily processed guitar sound on that solo.
  1:13pm g00berz:

Love the Beta Band

it is Jose Gonzalez, not Juan.

Jack Casady of the Jefferson airplane, or Jack Cassidy father of David and Sean Cassidy. Or possibly Jack Cassidy son of Patrick Cassidy nephew to David and Sean Cassidy.
  1:18pm Zinn The Mood:

Thanks, Pseu.

Your description of and interest in that time period reminded me of a pretty good book about it that if you haven’t already read might be interested in, www.pastemagazine.com...

Man, great show!

Kimono My House…pretty much a perfect album
  1:38pm skyline chili:

Okay, did a little research, and it turns out that it was David and Sean's father Jack Cassidy. He died at the age of 49, He either fell asleep or passed out while smoking in bed.
